Jimmy Holbrook

Welcome to the website of KB4GKI!

I was first licensed in 1983 as a novice, and was able to upgrade to extra in March of 2020. I really enjoy the digital modes of FT-4 and FT-8. I use the QRZ log book for all contacts on the digital modes.

I can often be found on the WB4PZA repeater (the .82 repeater) in Wilkesboro.
